Barack Obama

What? Me, Worry?

Here in the land of 21st century socialism, where I live, it was clear to about 40% of the population in 2002 that the country was coming apart at the seams. There were mega-protests by the opposition in the streets of the capitol and in all the major cities. Foreign news media were here in abundance and reporting on the crisis. The president at the time and other high officials would take to airwaves and say day after day ” ¡Aqui no passa nada!” (Here? Nothing’s happening here). The opposition protestors were quick to turn that phrase in their own […]

Obama Snubs Disabled Veterans, Refuses to Attend Memorial Dedication for Them

Hat/Tip to Adam Kredo at the Washington Free Beacon. The hubris of the President, particularly where the military is concerned is only outpaced by his enormous ego. President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who […]

House Gives Obama Go Ahead to Arm and Train Syrian Rebels in War on ISIS

Hat/Tip to Stephen Dinan at The Washington Times. Well, it looks like our President has finally gotten around to planning on how to deal with ISIS, and the House of Representatives has given him the go ahead. The House voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to back President Obama’s request for permission to train and money to arm the more reliable forces among Syrian rebels, giving the first congressional approval to the White House’s still-developing war plans. Even though it was a big win for the President, many legislators still held deep reservations of one sort or another. But underlying the 273-156 vote […]

Code Pink Outraged that the U.S. is Bombing ISIS…

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Looks like the nut patrol is out in force again. It only took them, what? Six years to get around to protesting Obama? Maybe we should drop the Pinkos into the Islamic State’s “Caliphate” so they can see first hand how non-Muslim women are treated. Code Pink protesting during today’s’ Senate hearing on ISIS.

Another Obamacare Success Story: Businesses Cutting Jobs Ahead of the Employer Mandate

. On the plus side, you’ll have (allegedly) cheap health insurance, and more time to play golf. Because, thanks to Obamacare, your job just went poof! Businesses are cutting jobs due to ObamaCare, according to surveys by several regional Federal Reserve Banks. Health economist John Goodman noted that “three Federal Reserve Banks in Philadelphia, New York and Atlanta have surveyed the folks in their area and roughly one fifth of the employers are saying they cut back on employment.” “Roughly one fifth are saying they’re moving from full time to part time,” Goodman added. “More than one in ten are […]

Pic of the Day: Six Years Too Late

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Since Obama burst onto the national political scene, his detractors have tried to paint a rather unflattering picture of him. The McCain campaign took its cue from Hillary’s primary campaign and made efforts to link Obama with Bill Ayers, who was the radical domestic terrorist and co-founder of the violent domestic terror group, the Weather Underground. Asked directly about Ayers, Obama famously lied by saying he was “just a guy in the neighborhood,” and that they’d served on a board together. Wrong. This picture has been making the rounds on Twitter today. It is from a Nov. […]

Obama Utilizes Law to Fight ISIS That He Attacked Bush for Using

Hat/Tip to Andrea Billups at Newsmax. He was against it before he was for it… President Barack Obama first criticized a law passed under George W. Bush that authorized the use of military force without congressional approval, seeking its repeal. But now, the president is using it to his advantage, the Washington Times reports, as he goes after the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists with an assault of airstrikes. Bush’s Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) statute was first implemented in 2001 in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. But Obama, at least until a year ago, didn’t like […]

U.S. Has Highest Corporate Tax Rate in the Industrialized World

The U.S. Has the Highest Corporate Income Tax Rate in the Industrialized World The next time some Obamabot tries to tell you American corporations aren’t paying their “fair share” in taxes, show them this chart. See that bottom red line? The one that says “United States?” Yeah, Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton, and pretty much all Democrats believe a corporate tax rate of 39.1% is not high enough. Sane people might disagree. Any day now the White House and Sen. Charles Schumer (D., N.Y.) will attempt to raise taxes on business, while making the U.S. tax code even more […]

Democrats Now Hold Majority of Appellate Court Seats

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Quietly, almost as if he applied his inane ‘leading from behind’ strategy to filling the courts, President Obama has begun tipping the scales of justice over towards the left. President Barack Obama has been quietly reversing the federal appellate courts’ balances over the past six years, with Democratic appointees now holding the majority of seats on nine of the country’s 13 United States Courts of Appeals. It’s a little-noticed shift with far-reaching consequences. “With all the gridlock, it is forgotten that one of the most profound changes this Congress made was filling the bench,” […]

Experts: Beheadings Driving Jihadi Recruitment to ISIS

Hat/Tip to Todd Beamon at Newsmax. Thanks to President Obama’s ‘leading from behind’ nonsense, ISIS is more empowered than ever to continue their reign of terror, unafraid of ANY response from America. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria’s reported execution of British aid worker David Haines is likely only the latest in what promises to be an escalating, serialized slaying of innocent people to prove its terrorist credentials and recruit more members, national security experts told Newsmax. “They are the ones. It is not al-Qaida,” former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra said. “They are trying to recruit more […]

5,000 Covert ‘Boots on Ground’ in Syria by Year’s End

Former CIA Director, Gen. Michael Hayden Hat/Tip to Greg Richter at Newsmax. Even though we’re not going to put boots on the ground in Syria, we’re, uh, well – we’re gonna have boots on the ground in Syria. Yeah, the most transparent administration on earth strikes again… Despite pledges from the White House that no American ground troops will be sent to fight the Islamic State (ISIS), Gen. Michael Hayden, former head of the CIA and NSA, thinks that up to 5,000 Americans will be on the ground by the end of the year. “It might be through covert action […]

President Bush Predicted What Is Happening In Iraq

  This post is not to debate the eight years George W. Bush served as President of the United States. I agreed with much of what he tried to do, but also had my disagreements with his policies. Having said that, I have always admired the man as someone who holds the distinction of being President during a terrible time in our history. Very few Presidents have had to deal with the issues he had to face while in office. Given the chance to talk at length with any public figure, past or present, I would choose President Bush, hands […]

DHS: Barack Obama can not be legally employed in the U.S.

It’s September 11 again. As we remember those that perished at the hands of Islamic terrorist in 2001, as well as their families and loved ones, we must also remember those that died in Benghazi; again at the hands of Islamic terrorist. September 11th has truly become another day of “infamy” for Americans. I can’t help but wonder if that self-centered egomaniac we have as our President will think about anything other than himself today. We, or rather most of us, have come to learn that for Barack Obama to think about anyone other than himself would be totally out […]

Nearly 25 Million Foreign-Born Hold US Jobs

Hat/Tip to Ali Meyer at CNSNews. Thanks to the Obama economic policies, we have rampant and epidemic unemployment in this country and what does our President want to do? He wants to INCREASE the number of folks looking for work by legalizing millions and millions of illegals. As it stands now, already nearly 25 million of them have taken American jobs. The number of foreign-born individuals holding jobs in the United States hit a recorded high of 24,639,000 in August, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The BLS has been tracking the number of foreign-born workers […]

Obama Says He Will Unilaterally Legalize Illegal Aliens

Hat/Tip to CNSNews. I guess this ‘Constitutional Lecturer’ never understood the concept of a Monarchy… (Or maybe he did) President Barack Obama said in a press conference in Wales on Friday afternoon that although his “preference is to see Congress act,” he intends to take unilateral action to give illegal aliens “some path” to “be legal” if Congress does not enact the sort immigration legislation he wants. And it looks like he’s throwing a bone to the Dems running for office in the so-called ‘battleground states.’ The Associated Press reported on Saturday that unnamed White House officials had told the […]

Obama: ‘I Should’ve Anticipated The Optics’ Of Golfing After Foley Beheading [VIDEO]

Hat/Tip to The Daily Caller. Even when he offers a mea culpa of sorts, he still manages to get a little whining squeezed into his rambling reply… Basically, he said that when “…you’re supposed to be on vacation,” that “you’re followed everywhere.” Supposed to be on vacation?? And he has the audacity to whine about the press? The press that falls all over itself to prop this empty suit up? Mr. President, I submit the idea to you that maybe, just maybe since we have Americans being beheaded, mutilated, tortured and killed and since we have a systematic genocide against […]

An Open Letter to Barack Obama: World War III is Here

Hat/Tip to Larry Gatlin and Fox News. Here, in its entirety is the open letter that country music legend, Larry Gatlin penned to President Obama. Dear Mr. President, It’s been quite a summer. The world is not a pretty place right now but I see you have had a chance to play golf. In fact you’ve played golf through the worst of it. Right after announcing that American journalist James Foley had been beheaded. Now I play golf and I enjoy it. But I’m not president of the United States… so I have a little more time. But I digress. […]

A Muslim Proposes The Only Reasonable Way To Deal With ISIS

Fox News has a video clip on their home page today from the Kelly File, in which she is interviewing an American? Muslim on the question “Are Muslims doing enough to combat ISIS”. His response to the question was a resounding no! He then went on to point that many Muslim organizations and Muslim leaders from the Muslim world are speaking out against ISIS every day; but he admitted that’s not enough. When Kelly point out that the only countries talking about going to Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS are non-Muslims countries, he said it should be the UN […]

Reagan’s Cold War Strategy Meets ISIS: We Win, They Lose

Reagan vs Obama, from “we win, they lose” to “shrink them to a manageable problem” How did we go from this to this? “We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.” — Barack Hussein Obama I wonder, how many beheadings a month are “manageable?” Maybe Obama can ask the international community to come up with a consensus on that. You know, just so we don’t offend anyone. Because it sure seems like […]

Does Anyone Care What the People of Ukraine Want?

In the midst of the geopolitical gamesmanship over the Ukraine, does anyone care what the people of Ukraine want? The question raised in the title of today’s post is a fair to ask, because one thing we know for sure is the western media is not reporting the truth of what has been happening in the Ukraine. From the western propaganda machines, all we get is “good” west and “bad” Russia. It has only been in the alternative news sources (blogs) that anything resembling the truth has been reported. One of the best sources has been my good friend and Guest […]
